Radio Times Christmas issue

In The Guardian, Radio Times editor Gill Hudson gives a glimpse behind-the-scenes of production of the Christmas issue of the listings magazine.
It is Friday November 28 and I have not yet seen a single editorial page of our 272-page "legendary Christmas issue" of the Radio Times. All the features go to press Tuesday; the listings Thursday. It takes five days to print 2.9 million copies across six regional editions, so deadlines are non-negotiable. I am calm; I am centred. I am lying.
Radio Times remains a firm favourite with TV and radio writers thanks to its policy of actually crediting them for their work.
